Frank Lloyd Wright called Ralph Thomas Walker “The only other honest architect in America.” Bold, dynamic, radical, and theatrical are among the epithets accurately applied to Walker’s work, labels certainly befitting the elegant Art Deco Stella Tower in Hell’s Kitchen, atop which sits this penthouse.
A grand milieu of approximately 3,596 square feet, Penthouse A at Stella Tower boasts soaring 14-foot ceilings, hand-laid solid oak flooring throughout, unparalleled views of Midtown and Downtown, and every detail and amenity required for truly luxurious urban living.
A stately foyer introduces the finery. Beyond lie a captivating formal dining area with spectacular views and a living room, where a wide bank of windows reveals iconic views of the city and welcomes natural light.
The inviting sitting area includes a wet bar and opens to a 934-square-foot wraparound terrace overlooking one of the greatest cities on earth.
Sunlight-flooded, the custom kitchen handcrafted by Smallbone of Devizes, includes Miele appliances, polished concrete countertops, Waterworks R.W. Atlas fittings and fixtures, Nanz hardware, and an informal dining area. Windows facing in three directions afford a variety of vistas.
Exemplifying luxury, the generous master suite features double-height ceilings, an oversized, windowed dressing room, and an opulent bath with a glass-walled steamshower, soaking tub, and chevron-patterned Black Zeus marble floors kept thoughtfully warm by radiant heating.
The penthouse’s two guest bedrooms include en suite baths, spacious closets, and striking views of the city.
Designed in 1927 and named for Walker’s wife, Stella Tower is one of the city’s finest examples of Pre-War architecture.
Residents enjoy an array of amenities, including a private piano lounge with a bar, a fitness center, garden, a media room, storage, and a full-time doorman.
